ON THE FOX TV NETWORK

PRODUCED IN TUSKEGEE, ALABAMA

BLACK BELT MEDIA
AIRS SATURDAY MORNINGS 5:30 A.M. – 6:00 A.M.

PREMIER SHOW AIRS AUGUST 2, 2003

OUR TCN’S JIMMY JOHNSON WILL BE INTRODUCING
A NEW WEEKLY TELEVISION SHOW

“BLACK BELT MEDIA”
On FOX TV

BLACK BELT MEDIA WAS A DREAM COME TRUE FOR JIMMY JOHNSON - A COMMUNICATIONS VEHICLE THROUGHOUT THE BLACK BELT REGION - UNIFIED AND CONNECTED BY THE ENRICHED DARK SOIL OF MOTHER EARTH.

NETWORKING WITH MR. STEVE MYERS OF EVENTS PROMOTION AND ALEXANDER LEE VIDEO PRODUCTIONS UNLIMITED OF MONTGOMERY, THE SHOW WILL AIR ON WCOV FOX ON SATURDAY MORNINGS. IN THE FUTURE, BBM WILL ALSO AIR SHOWS ON SUNDAY MORNINGS AND THURSDAYS EVENINGS, AS THOSE TIME SLOTS BECOME AVAILABLE.

JIMMY JOHNSON MUST THANK THE MANY SPONSORS AND UNDERWRITERS FOR THEIR CONTINUED SUPPORT, EVEN AFTER TCN WAS PRICED OUT IN THE TUSKEGEE MARKET. OUR GOAL AT BBM IS TO DELIVER THE POSITIVE AND INFORMATIVE NEWS AND INFORMATION TO THE PEOPLE OF THE BLACK BELT THAT HAVE ASKED FOR OUR NEWS. THE RICH SOIL OF THE BLACK BELT RUNS FROM SOUTH CAROLINA TO THE TEXAS BORDERS. BBM WILL INITIALLY BE HIGHLIGHTING THE CITIES OF GREENBORO, SELMA, UNIONTOWN, MARION, UNION SPRINGS, MONTGOMERY, AND TUSKEGEE, AL. AND WILL EXPAND IN THE FUTURE BY INCORPORATING OTHER BLACK BELT CITIES AND COMMUNITIES.

BBM HOPES TO AIR ALL OF THOSE SHOWS ALREADY FAMILIAR TO THE TUSKEGEE VIEWING AUDIENCE, SUCH AS JIMMY’S JOURNAL, MARIE LYLES’ ART OF ENTERTAINMENT AND LIVING; DONNA BRADFORD, HOST OF FACE TO FACE, SPORTS, TEEN SPOT, AND THE COMMUNITY CALENDER. BBM WILL CONTINUE TO SEEK OUT AND AIR IN MARKETS THAT WILL ASSIST IN PROVIDING AN OPPORTUNITY TO “GO LIVE” AND AIR TALK SHOWS SUCH AS JIMMY WITH JACQUELYN CARLISLE, GIVING YOU STRAIGHT-FORWARD, INTELLEGENT, FROM-THE-HEART INFORMATION AS WELL AS RESEARCHING VARIOUS TOPICS OF INTEREST.

BBM WILL TRAVEL TO OTHER BLACK BELT COMMUNITIES TO SEARCH FOR THE POSTIVE NEWS AND HISTORY OF THAT PARTICULAR REGION. BBM WILL ALSO BE LOOKING AT NEW BUSNESSES IN THE COMMUNITY AND SHOWCASING NEW TALENT. WE HOPES THAT OUR AUDIENCE SUPORTS OUR SPONSORS AND OUR SHOWS. THIS WILL GIVE THE REGION AN INSPIRATION FOR NETWORKING, FOCUSING ON BUSINESS ENTREPRENEURS, AND PROVIDING AN ALTERNATIVE TO OUR DAILY NEWS, OMITTING ALL THE NEGATIVE, VIOLENT, SEXUAL CONTENT.

JIMMY WOULD LIKE TO THANK THE TUSKEGEE /MACON COUNTY COMMUNITY THAT WAVES, SMILES, AND SAYS “KEEP GOING, WE NEED IT.” FOR THEIR GREAT SUPPORT, HE’S HOPING THAT TOURISM, OUR NATURAL INDUSTRY, WILL BE A STRONG FOCAL POINT FOR BBM. TOURIST VISITING TUSKEGEE AND MACON COUNTY NEED DIRECTIONS, MAPS AND INFORMATION TO ASSIST IN TEACHING THEM ABOUT OUR COMMUNITY AND ABOUT THE NUMEROUS SITES TO VISIT IN OUR COMMUNITY. BBM WILL BE ADVERTISING THOSE SITES AND AREAS.

BBM HOPES TO AIR THE COMMERCIALS OF BUSINESSES THAT ARE INTERESTED IN TOURIST DOLLARS. JIMMY IS STILL LOOKING FOR TEN BED & BREAKFAST’S HERE IN THE CITY OF TUSKEGEE. OUR COMMUNITY SHOULD BE PREPARED TO ACCOMMODATE ALL THOSE WHO ATTEND THE OVER 150 SPECIAL EVENTS THAT OCCUR EACH YEAR IN TUSKEGEE.

JIMMY JOHNSON’S TOUR COMPANY, THE TUSKEGEE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD TOURS, (WWW.TUSKEGEETOURS.COM) HAS PLACED BILLBOARDS AROUND THE TUSKEGEE COMMUNITY. TALENTED, LOCAL ARTISTS ARE DOING “A WORK IN PROGRESS” PROJECT AS THEY ENHANCE THE BILLBOARDS WITH IMAGES OF VARIOUS PROMINENT TUSKEGEE PERSONALITIES INCLUDING BOOKER T.
